Did you know Alzheimer's disease kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined? In fact, every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's disease.
National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
According to the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's disease is “a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.”
November is the national Alzheimer's awareness month. We’re honored to partner with the Alzheimer's Association. During the month of November, 20% of the sales from our purple bottle will go to the Alzheimer's Association to help bring awareness to this disease.
The impact of Alzheimer's disease
As the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, we believe there needs to be more awareness about this disease. With 5.7 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, most of us are impacted by it one way or the other.
What you can do to protect your cognitive health
Most people believe that taking care of our brain is something we need to do later on in life. But did you know that brain changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease may begin 20 or more years before symptoms appear?
In light of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we want to inform you of the disease and also show you how to protect your own brain.
